A thirty-five-minute wait was what stood between good food and us! The place was packed but the friendly workers accommodated us so well. There's ample space for people who are willing to wait! I recommend their BBQ ribs, fish and chips and jambalaya!

The Arrogant Butcher is a great place for a good meal in downtown Phoenix. The atmosphere is hip and sporty and the menu offers many unique and well prepared options.

Their menu is all over the board, which isn't really a good thing. They really don't have an identity to their menu, it's like they briefly touch on various cuisine. Not sure why they named it the Arrogant Butcher when there was maybe 2 cuts...More

Ate here twice in one day (not by choice). Steak salad at lunch was filling but skimpy on the steak and the steak was cold. Ate with a group for dinner. The pretzel bites and fondue were the best part. Service was slow and food...More
